Good Deals on 2010 Volkswagen Golf
But nowadays, it's more like "Think Bigger" as in bigger sticker price, bigger maintenance costs, and bigger gas bill. So Volkswagen is taking steps to change all that, with a slew of attractive deals.
Now through June 30, you can take advantage of 0% financing for up to 60 months on a new Golf. Or get $1,000 back through available dealer cash. Lease customers can grab lease rates as low as 1%, with $0 security deposit and $500 in lease bonus cash.
For recent college grads, there's an additional $500 in dealer cash (finance or lease.) Unfortunately, none of these deals are for the desirable TDI models.
Though it's not the most economical car out there, the VW Golf does get by on a budget, while offering a level of refinement that's a clear step above the econo-box competition. So maybe their slogan should be, "Think Medium."
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
